Saab 95 production
Here is a view of several stations on the Saab 9-5 production line. The
9-5, like the 9-3 is a fantastic car! I love Saab alot and I hope you Saab
lovers out there enjoy this insight into what goes on in Trollhatten.
Yamaha R1 vs Police (SAAB 9-5 Aero)
*** EDIT: The officer driving the police car was later sentenced to pay a
ticket, 19.000 SEK (€ 2000 // $ 2850). The reason was he didn´t obey
order to abort pursuit and he didn´t had the permission to cut the bike
Video from Sweden. An unmarked police car chases an Yamaha R1 -01. Seems
like the police doesn´t use their sirens. The driver of the police car was
later charged for not obey order. 6.34 he receives the order to abort the
pursuit. And yes, the guy on the R1 didn´t have the skills to keep the
Euro NCAP | Saab 9-5 | 2009 | Crash test
Frontal Impact takes place at 64 Km/h, 40% of the width of the car striking
a deformable barrier. In the side impact, a mobile deformable barrier
impacts the driver's door at 50 km/h. In the pole test, the car tested is
propelled sideways at 29km/h into a rigid pole.
Crash Test 1999 - 2008 Saab 9-5 (Side Impact) IIHS
SIDE IMPACT TEST WITH STANDARD SIDE AIRBAGS
OVERALL EVALUATION: Acceptable
Injury measures Head protection Structure/safety cage
Head/neck Torso Pelvis/leg
Driver Good Good Acceptable Good Marginal
Rear passenger Good Good Good Marginal
Important: Side impact crash test ratings can be compared across vehicle
type and weight categories.
The Saab 9-5 was introduced in the 1999 model year. Although engineering
changes were made to improve frontal crashworthiness beginning with 2002
models built after November 2001, these changes were not expected to affect
The 9-5 was modestly restyled for the 2006 model year.
Driver — Measures taken from the dummy indicate that a fracture of the
pelvis would be possible in a crash of this severity. The risk of
significant injuries to other body regions is low.
Rear passenger — Measures taken from the dummy indicate a low risk of any
significant injuries in a crash of this severity.
Driver — The dummy's head was protected from being hit by any hard
structures, including the intruding barrier, by a side airbag that deployed
from the seat.
Rear passenger — The dummy's head was hit by the pillar behind the rear
passenger door and the window glass and window sill of the rear door. The
pillar is required by federal standard to provide some protection for
occupants' heads. The impacts with the window glass and sill did not
produce high head injury measures, but the head protection is inadequate.
1999 SAAB 9-5 Whining noise (The dreaded sludge?)
A short clip of our SAAB 9-5 2.0T which has developed a rather annoying
high pitched whine until warm.
This problem (from what I've been reading) stems from oil sludge building
up in the sump which will eventually starve the engine of oil. Heres to
hoping its not quite that serious.
The car is a 1999 and has 156k miles on the clock.
Vi kan tillbakavisa alla rykten. 96 SG-2 är inte bilen som kommer att
rädda Saab. Den är bara Klassikerredaktionens vision om hur en
säkerhetsbil från Saab kunde ha sett ut på 1970-talet. Så här tror vi
att ett krockprov kunde ha gått till.
Saab 9-5 SID LCD Display Repair
My repair of a Saab SID display, which had lost pixels on the LCD screen.
Ultimately, I discovered the ribbon cable had deteriorated beyond repair,
and I purchased a replacement ribbon cable. A $400 unit was fixed for a
little more than $40.
